A series of drug take back events are planned in the Hannibal area next week.

Northeast Missouri Narcotics Task Force agents will staff drug take backs Tuesday (APR 26) at the Hannibal Clinic from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and at Hannibal Regional Hospital from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. A drug take back event is also planned in Monroe City on Thursday from 10 a.m. until noon at the Monroe City Senior Nutrition Center. Drug take backs are also planned next Saturday (APR 30) from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at County Market locations in Canton and Palmyra. The take back events allow you to easily get rid of unwanted prescriptions. Prescription and over the counter medications will be accepted whether in pill… liquid or patch form.
